My name is Sandie from Malaysia. I am wondering if you will be able to help me in this area

I know of a 3 year old boy who has a little challenge in his growing up years. He was diagnosed autistic about a year ago and has been undergoing treatment in a Singapore hospital for almost a year and is making satisfactory progress. The therapists attending to him hail from Philippines and Singapore.

Would you know of similar therapists in Philippines who might like to look into the possibility of taking up a private post to this child in Malaysia. We are looking at female, fresh graduates in that capacity. It will be a lived in job with the family and her responsibility is mainly to design the child's activities for optimum progress. She will also accompany the child and the mother to Singapore twice weekly for treatments and in so doing the therapist will actually acquire on the job training which will be useful to her in the future

Thank you

As a family support organization, ASP is sympathetic to the plight of parents all over the world in search of the right intervention professionals for their children. However, ASP is not legally authorized to refer individuals for foreign employment. Our organization is profoundly invested in keeping educators, therapists and medical specialists in the Philippines to care for an ever increasing population of individuals with autism. We wish you the best of luck!
